Musculoskeletal injuries from sports, trauma or overuse can be painful, messy and difficult to diagnose. Inflammation can obstruct traditional imaging using Xray and MRI, making it difficult to pinpoint the extent and nature of an injury. Those imaging techniques only give you “still shots” of the affected area, inhibiting the clinician’s ability to differentiate various layers and structures beneath the skin’s surface.
Ultrasound imaging can identify the exact location and nature of a musculoskeletal injury within seconds, enabling the health care provider to accurately diagnose and treat injured patients.
If you are not convinced that Ultrasonography is the best imaging technology for musculoskeletal injuries, here are 10 compelling reasons to become a believer.
While ultrasound technology is a relative late-comer to the diagnostic table, it is rapidly gaining ground as a superior form of imaging for musculoskeletal injuries.
For accurate diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal injuries and conditions, the sports medicine team at NYDNRehab relies on diagnostic ultrasonography and other technologies to get to the bottom of your pain and heal it. Do not waste time on Xrays and MRI. Get accurate real-time imaging and treatment at NYDNRehab, so you can recover from your musculoskeletal injury and get back in the game.
